The Effect of Authentic Video on Communicative Competence.
Weyers, Joseph R.
Modern Language Journal, v83 n3 p339-49 Aut 1999
Studied the impact of exposure to authentic video--a Spanish-language telenovela--on the second-language acquisition process of students studying Spanish at the university level. Measured the increase in listening comprehension that exposure to the soap opera would afford and tested the validity of the hypothesis that an increase in the quality and quantity of input would contribute to enhanced oral proficiency.
